Nikki, if you just started fast forward today, you probably will not see a loss int he evning off the same day...mine doesn't ussually show up until the morning after the 2nd day. Also if you had red meat or pork, it stays on you a little longer (it's harder to digest). You will probably be lower after tommorrow evening. maybe you should try seafood and chicken tommorrow for your meals to have something light and stick to green veggies.

Don't worry it will all work out in the end

Rosie, welcome, you've come to a great board. I've only been here for a few days, but everyone is so supportive & always has good tips.

Nikkijo, Sounds like your doing everything right, I'm sure you’ll have a loss by your next WI. I ended up starting the program today, but wasn't able to do the FF due to my high BP. I did well with my foods and it was easier for me then I thought it would be. I tried a Leans sub meatball for lunch and I totally didn't like the meatballs, but choked them down. I go in tomorrow to be measured for the first time.

Deetsmom, your stuffed bell peppers sound good. I'm not a fan of brown rice, but only had it once. Is it supposed to be crunchy?

A few posts back someone mentioned about a cookbook. I asked my center today and she told me the reason they don't have them is that they are making some changes to them, but couldn't tell me when they would have them. She mentioned next month we would be able to get more recipes on their site.

Gamababa: I didnt like brown rice until this year and now I ADORE IT, I wont eat white rice It has a great texture that you might come to like. If you have a Trader Joes nearby, they sell a FABULOUS frozen box of it that takes 3 min to cook..my kids love it too!

You can buy the cookbooks on eBay for sure!

Mary- you sound like an AWESOME cook- Im going to have to try this! What brand tortillas do you use? I find it difficult to find the tiny ones low in calories.

deets~ I use corn tortillas...they are lower in calories. The one I use are only 30 calories (which is why we would have it out in the centers when they would tell me I have to count the whole thing as 2 starches )
I started on my own to just use two and count it as 1 starch and I don;t think it has hurt. The ones I get are from the local grocery stores and manufactured here in my city so I don't think they are out were you are, but try corn, they are smaller, less calories, more fiber.

Rosie - I hope that you find the support here that you need ...


OK gang ... tomorrow is the day !! I am starting the version of TO that I have from a few years back (basically unlimited protein and green veggies) So keep your fingers crossed for me ! I have also tried to plan meals that everyone can eat, it is such a pain trying to cook a seperate meal for myself

Hello Chickies,

WELCOME Newbies - you have come to the right place.

Marbear - thanks for another way to use my tilapia and shrimp. Also saw a beautiful lobster tail salad on one of the cooking shows this weekend.

I can't sleep because I have acid reflux. Drinking my cider vinegar and eating tums. So far I am getting some relief. The puppy took a few sips of cider vinegar also. She hasn't eaten her food for the last few days, so that means that she had too many treats from company. We have been totally out of control with the holiday eating. Getting back on track today by throwing all party snacks and wrong food out for the trash pickup this morning. One of my goals for this year is not to cook the traditional food for the holidays and stick to healthy dishes. Usually, the family doesn't want to hear that. But most of them are not overweight either.

Gonna see if I can focus my eyes to read a little and possibly go to sleep. Goodnight chickies.

Happy New Year's to everyone.

Welcome all the newbies!

Just wanted to say that I faced the scale yesterday by going to the COD (Center of Doom). I started as if I was a new person. Started TO yesterday, today is Day 2 and so far, so good (doing the unlimited proteins and green veggies)! Going back to COD tomorrow to see if this TO is working. I haven't got up the nerve to post my post-holiday weight on here just yet, but promise I will by the end of the week.

Won't be able to post too much, but will be lurking when I can.

Hugs, Sy

Smile Recipe Book

Does anyone how much is the recipe book? I don't want to pay too much on ebay. And the reason it is not available in the center is because there is a new one out. I saw it a couple days before Christmas at my Center, the girls were looking through it. It should came out this week - they said. Along with new Lites flavors.

I am off to WI, wish me luck - I am not feeling positive about this one.

Sarah

They were 24.99 last week at the center, a 20% off sale. I got the "new" one and it was the same as the old one with the differences being in the excahnge counts (bummer).

Good Morning and Happy 2006 - I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Heather and I started LAWL on 12/29. I had a baby in March 2004 and I lost everything but the last 15 lbs. I've been on WW off and on for the past 3/4 years except while PG of course. I did good on WW - but I felt like at the end I was allowing myself too much junk for my points. So I figured starting a new program would give me the extra motivation I need. Right now my goal is 150 and I lost 5 lbs on TO and I'm so excited about the program. I have talked with several of you on the TO/FF thread, so I figured I would wait until the Jan. Friends thread was posted to officially introduce myself. Wow - you ladies really get this thread moving - already 6 pages and 3 days into the new year!!! I will try to catch up and get to know you gals....

Thanks to all of those who have already helped me - I greatly appreciate it!!

Heather

Heather, When was your baby born? I had a baby girl, Emily, on March 17, 2004. She's not so much a baby anymore, though...getting bigger every day.

I had somewhat of a NSV this morning. I went for a checkup at my doctor's office and of course they weighed me in. I tried not to look because I know I always weigh more on their scale. But I looked anyway. You know how when you step on those scales and they move the big weight to start you off and then use the small one to get to your exact weight? (Sorry, don't know how else to describe it!) Well, the nurse started me on the 100 pound mark, which means that she thought I would be under 150...so that was my excitement for the day!

Wow Tina - I know you had to be soooo excited for that main bar to stop at 100!!!

My little girl was born on March 10 - so they are exactly one week apart - that is amazing.....They are so fun - I'm just enjoying every minute of it -

So are you planning on having anymore?

Norissa~ you can do it

Tina~ great NSV. I remember the first time they had to use the extra 50 pound one, I was horrified and before I started LAWL, one nurse put the 200 up, I was mortified, canít wait to go in and not have to use the 50 pounder

I am sooo tired. Today is my first day of starting my 13 hour days (working 8 hours, followed by 5 hours at my practicum/residency) I know hat I will get the hang of it, but I am so tired, especially after a week of sleeping in and staying up late.

TOM is here, so no point in really counting whatís on the scale. I will just see were I end up ate the end of the week when the water is gone.

Mary~ it will get better.

No more babies for me...I have my little girl and a 9 year old stepdaughter, so that's enough for me. I just have to laugh at my daughter because her personality is certainly coming through. She's so silly and happy and easy-going and of course, very energetic!!!! She's like my best friend, you know?
